Up for auction is a 1905 copy 'Respectability - It's Rise and Remedy', by Elbert Hubbard writing as Fra Elbertus. Per the Apologia - 'This little volume was written on board railroad trains, on a lecture tour - barnstorming the one-night stands . The object of its writing was the delectation & divertisement of the author. The two works that inspired the venture were 'A Theory of the Leisure Class,' by Professor Veblen, and 'News from Nowhere,' by William Morris. The object of the book has been fully realized, and if it serves to set up a small cerebration in the minds of others, it will serve a double purpose and make the writer twice glad.
